Resident Testimonial

Max, Resident, Wallace Lodge










Max has called the McKellar Centre's Wallace Lodge home for the past four years. Max enjoys the lifestyle at Wallace Lodge and looks forward to regular visits from his four children and 13 grandchildren.

Max is a retired officer in charge in the country fire brigade and worked throughout regional Victoria over his 47 year career. Following his fire-fighting career, Max drove school buses from Werribee to the old Chanel College, which he also enjoyed. 

Max enjoys talking and socialising with fellow Wallace Lodge residents and staff and has formed many close friendships. He is an avid Melbourne Football Club supporter and loves to go to a game when they play in Geelong.

“We are a big family at Wallace Lodge,” Max says. "The staff tend to any needs I have and I receive excellent care."
